18 April 2012

Brace yourself for more Xperia magic from Sony

Sony launched its Xperia smartphones in style last week, with an exclusive Labrinth concert here in London. Some funky robot dancing was the highlight of the show – aside from the sleek and sexy phones themselves of course.

We've already reviewed and fallen in love with the Sony Xperia S, which packs in a fantastic HD screen and excellent camera, but the Xperia P and Xperia U are yet to emerge – although we did get some hands-on time with them in March.

Current estimates have them hitting stores mid-May, and we're hoping to bring you a full review in the next 2-3 weeks. Be the first to know when our reviews go live by following us on Twitter and liking us on Facebook!

And do not forget that you can KEEP your existing mobile phone number if you decide to switch mobile phone operators. All you need is your PAC code. Use our handy tool on to obtain your PAC code.
